1957 Tapelband Residence by David Hyun AIA – Silver Lake Mid-Century Post-and-Beam
Located on Lucile Avenue, this premium Silver Lake street is a prolific queue of special mid-century architectural residences. The Tapelband residence built in 1957 and designed by David Hyun AIA exemplifies mid-century post-and-beam architectural authenticity. First time on market, the original family is selling the home as a trust sale. Other David Hyun designs include Yagura Tower/Japanese Plaza Village in Downtown LA, and the McTernan Residence/LA Cultural Monument. David Hyun was also known to have worked with the prominent architects Richard Neutra and Robert Alexander.
With sweeping vistas out to Santa Monica, including the Griffith Park Observatory and the Hollywood sign, the spectacular upslope 11,859 square foot lot (as per tax assessor) offers exceptional tranquility in the heart of the city. Hyun’s design vision is in harmony with the serene setting. Walls of glass seamlessly integrate interior linear spaces with exterior backdrops of panoramic views. The flexible floor plan of 1380 SF (as per tax assessor) includes 2+1 and den on the main upper level of the home, and a 1+1 separate lower guest quarters. The upper main level features an open floor plan, high ceilings, warm wooden built-in cabinetry, a small den that is now used as a workshop, original tile bath, and louver windows. Flooring of hardwood and period linoleum complement the interiors. Metal kitchen cabinetry is original in design in retro powder blue hues. Lower level guest quarters with 1+1 is perfect for an office or studio. Although this lower level is original to the home, it may not be with permit. The architectural design simplicity gives you the option to renovate or refurbish this special home. Dining area sliding glass door opens to rear grounds that feature a patio, side garden, grape arbor, fountain, and a gentle upslope hill that leads to a view promontory. Carport accommodates one car.
